Answer:

Epinephrine(adrenaline) and norepinephrine

Explanation:

These are hormones/ chemical messengers that speed up the neural responses and prepare the body for stress or emergency situations. Both have different specific effects but the outcome is high B.P and heart rate, dilated pupils, muscle activity increases etc. They usually result due to sympathetic nervous responses i.e. fight or flight" response typically in stress situations.
